Coil over Shocks

My front shocks on my car need replacing. I just replaced the rear shocks
with coil over shocks. Yesterday a guy at a car meet said I should put the same (coil over) on the front. Any Help? My car is a 1930 Ford Model A Tudor
Street Rod.
Thanks!!!
Problem solved. Thanks.

I did a buggy spring to coilover swap on my old bosses 29 Model A roadster pickup, and it was definitely worthwhile. I know I took a bunch of pics of it, but I can't seem to find them anywhere,

Usually they have different weight ratings, for the weight of the engine and front suspension.

Coil over Shocks

Thanks to those who offered their advice. I found out it was not my shocks I need to replace but a spring problem. Thanks again!! Keep Rockin'
